I don't see an issue with having a well-tested, `apt-get upgrade'
procedure over a stock consumer image; even if the community has to
provide that.

Wouldn't take much to provide a pretty GUI for it, and the deb could
update sources.list too.

At the moment, as long as we get the APIs and, even better, the
functionality back on OS 2006, how that's distributed to end-users is
almost a trivial problem, IMHO.
